Gritty is delightfully terrifying, but our own Iceburg can be terrifying in his own way.
You would rather stare at a shaved and waxed Gritty?
Not I, sir.
cannot… unsee… the belly button… sob

You could win it!
I loathe hockey and love Gritty.
Reminds me of another adage: “Cold hands, needs gloves”
When I was in my twenties, I posed nude for a magazine. Well, the guy gave me two candy bars as well but it was the magazine that I really wanted.
Whoa. Hard stance to take as a Michigander! Respect.
As a player, I can’t wait to get vaccinated so I can hit the ice again. This is not a sport you can play with a mask on your face. You just end up water-boarding yourself after a couple shifts if your mask is at all effective.
If you’re into it, give Iceburgh a follow on Twitter, he has quite the personality at times…
Try wearing one playing soccer…in Oregon…in winter. Yeah, that’s what they are making high school kids do.
All the cool and weird rich kids at the private school I attended were on the hockey team. A few also played baseball, so we could talk about that at least.
I have watched one televised hockey game from beginning to end, at a friend’s big party. It was a brilliant game - hockey as Art - and there was a happy ending: the Red Wings won the Stanley Cup again.
Some bods just look better furry. Nobody ever asked for a hairless Sean Connery or Tom Selleck or Burt Reynolds.
If it’s over 32 at the rink, we’re all complaining about how HOT it is. Also, beer league hockey has regular attendance problems, so 7-8 skaters is a normal thing, especially in the spring and early fall. That means 3-4 minutes on the ice, one minute off, game stoppages are generally less than 20 seconds. It’s pretty challenging in the best of times. I’m not about to try with a mask on my face. I can only think of water polo as a more cardio intensive team sport.
@MerelyGifted: Wow, that had to be ages ago, Wings haven’t won a cup since '08!
I don’t Twitter, but I do look through select threads when drawn to my attention. I appreciate the recommendation!
“Because I’m wauRHHHGHargh it.”
Impressed that Gritty stayed still for the 90 minutes required to do the portrait.
